Body Stress Defined
As you sit, you may have body stress in your back, feet, in the back of your skull, in your chest, or in your stomach.
Body stress is a form of tensions or tightness that accumulates from many different stressors over time such as:
Surgery Stress - removal of your thyroid, tonsils, or gallbladder
Injury Stress such as falling on your knees, car accident, or whiplash
Infection Stress – sore throat, viruses, sinuses
Physical stress – menstrual cycle every month
Emotional stress – divorces, loss of someone, being married, having kids
Chemical Stress – drinking alcohol and eating a lot of junk food over a period of time.
Exercise Stress - if you are overdoing it
These stressors cause body stress and become chronic or stay too long.
Body stress is an inappropriate reaction. The body is supposed to remove stress and the tension of injuries long after.
Your body is still reacting to these older injuries and traumas. As you get older, tension builds up, creating stiffness.
Certain muscles and tissues are in a contracted state that will not relax or turn off.
If you go to sleep at night and you just watch your body, you will notice certain things won’t turn off like your:
This tension is preventing you from deep sleep, rejuvenating, recovering, and losing weight.
Burning of fat must occur in the recovery faze which is when you are in deep sleep and relaxing, not when you are under stress.
Stress activates a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone by the adrenal gland.
That hormone has the capacity of producing fat around the organs called visceral fat because your body is trying to protect the organs.
Body stress stops motion in the body which is a loss of communication in that body part. When you lose communication in the body part like in your pancreas, it will do what it wants to do.
How to Remove Body Stress
You have to get sleep because that’s where you recover, heal, and recharge.
Sometimes, the body can’t sleep because of body stress.
I use acupressure to help remove the stress. Acupressure works to turn off the stress mechanism in your body that is stuck on.
Once the stress is extracted out of the body, they people can sleep, they have movement, blood is circulating, and they will have better recovery when they sleep.
With recovery, you will have better metabolism and more weight loss.
These reduce body stress:
Good nutrition like calcium and potassium
Exercise like walking
Changing your environment. Sometimes, if you are in a job that is very stressful, you would need to get another job.
If you are in a marriage that is very stressful, you have to change that situation.
